Nessie and the Gila Monster



Bleh, not 100% satisfied with how this came out, probably because I didn't have a clear idea of how I wanted to colour it, but I liked my idea and wanted to get it out :) I may do some variations on this in future with more concrete colouring ideas.

I don't know what you are thinking- I really like the colors a lot. Its almost like they are dancing at the bottom of Loch Ness. And the poor gila monster is going to drown.

thanks trees :) I actually don't mind the colours too much (what I meant was that I basically made that up on the fly) and the background came out better than I would have thought, but the shading was also kinda rushed and I think it shows - plus I made some mistakes with it that I couldn't fix to my satisfaction, again because I didn't set it up properly. still, I like it better than I did when I first put it up! I got bored of both this and the unicorn one fairly quickly; I doubt I'll be working on any overwrought illustrations of my own anytime soon.

thanks also for adding a more sinister dimension to my cute picture D: perhaps I should draw them in the desert next with Nessie being out of her element... haha.
